Samsung Reveals 46" Transparent LCD

LCDs are brilliant, sure, but what about a transparent one? Yep, Samsung has one. Today, they announced that they'll be expanding the transparent display market with production of a 46-inch transparent LCD panel, beginning this month. Younghwan Park, senior vice president of LCD marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics, said, “Transparent panels, an exciting application of next-generation display technology, have unlimited potential to change our viewing habits over the next several years. As a strong supporter of the transparent display market, Samsung plans to develop this technology into a new growth engine for our LCD business.”

Samsung’s 46-inch transparent LCD panel features a contrast ratio of 4,500:1 with HD (1,366x768) resolution and 70 percent color gamut. A 2012 CES Innovations Award honoree, Samsung’s transparent LCD panel is being produced for a wide variety of retail display applications such as product showcases, commercial freezer doors and platform doors of subway stations in North America, Europe and Asia. Also, it will be used in other applications including e-boards, information windows, medical equipment, e-signage and mobile devices.

And hey, it makes you want a drink -- hooray!

I love the transparent display from Samsung. Can you imagine a world like the one portrayed in Blade Runner (directors cut) and Minority Report, with all the floating advertisements on transparent displays? The future is almost here! :)

Looks like someone wants a piece of the OLED pie (meaning a transparent surface projecting video.), hopefully Samsung's solution will work and see widespread usage; seems like the future is finally here.
